I’ve got two sets of Lego Ideas #025 (steamboat Willie). They have the same barcode. Underneath the barcode there are some small numbers: one box has 118789 970, but the other box has 118789 017.

A still from an unboxing video of that set shows 118789 907:

What are these numbers? Should they be the same for all boxes of a set?

  • Does this answer your question? What does the 4 digit number embossed on my LEGO set represent?

    It looks like I only got an answer for embossed digits but not the barcode number.

  • From a sampling of 17 sets from the last few years, I find the first number to be either 118789, 123372, 124957, and likely others (I haven't found what they mean, nor have I found a correlation with any of the other identifiers for those sets). Feb 2, 2022 at 9:04

    I've got a couple of boxes with 118789 112 and 124957-110 (different typefaces, one with space and the other with a hyphen). Speculation: factory ID, lot ID. Feb 2, 2022 at 12:38
